I hear ya. I have ran out of little things to do so now I have to wait on the lift and tires. Then I will be waiting on gears and a selectable locker for the rear. I guess it will never end. I am sure I will find some side projects like rockers,lunchbox locker for the front, and other mis. armor to keep me busy untill the tires and lift.

This is the one I used. If I had to do it again i would have used a 4.25" one and filed it out to fit. The 4.5" hole works just fine but it is not a real tight fit. It by no means is going anywhere but I always am looking for something better

You should go with the BFG all terrains instead of the MT's I have the MT's and prefer the quiet of the AT's, they are also a little less expensive. Just a suggestion.

I am going to do both. I have an extra set of 5 wheels that i will have some AT's for around town and some MT's I can throw on when I go to play

If you wheel at all you will not regret buying an M/T. They wear faster, but the difference in any sort of mud is night and day.

OT, but have your brown dog MMLs loosened up a little since you first installed them? the first time i drove it after installing then they transfered a ton of vibration to the steering wheel and a little less to the pedals and rest of the tub. i've noticed in the week having them though, that this has gone away substantially and there's just minor vibration in the steering wheel now at idle which also vibrates the side mirrors. i'm guessing they just need to break in for a little or something. they're awesome mounts, and have completely cured my jeep of all it's driveline vibes, it accelerates so much smoother now and i kinda like being able to 'feel' the engine more. it is also very possible that i may have tightened the through bolt too much, or not enough

Yeah the if you over tighten the through bolts they will transmitt more vibes. I dont feel anything in my jeep. It may be that i am just use to it .
I really like the mounts they are a great product.

right on, it was late and i just tightened them to 48ft/lbs per 4x4xpolr instructions. i went back and read the brown dog instructions and they said to just make it snug, so i'll try loosening the through bolt a little

Today I installed my side marker lights. I installed them a little higher than I planned on but I ended up wanting them even with my taillights. It was a very easy install. Cutting and splicing in to the tail lights and soldering was the most time consuming thing. I used a 2 pole flat wire harnness to tap into the wiring harness so that they can be unpluged if need be.
